A Simple Introduction to Vedic Astrology @ Awakening
Feb 9 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm
What is your karma?  Our lives are often the answer to this question, and yet it also remains a deep mystery.  One of the most fascinating and useful tools for pulling back the veil of that mystery is the ancient art and science of Vedic astrology, or Jyotish.  Jyotish can shine light on an individual’s unique and special talents, gifts and challenges, as well as suggest ways in which one can work with them in order to benefit oneself and others. This class will be a simple introduction to Vedic astrology.  To enhance your learning  “Vedic Astrology: Simply Put”, by William Levacy, is suggested reading.
We will briefly examine together the following topics:
-What is Jyotish, and how is it similar to, and different from, Western astrology?
-What does a Northern Indian chart look like, and how does one “read” its basic parts?
-How does one assess both strengths and weaknesses in a chart?
-We will look at a few charts of famous people, and students will have the opportunity to schedule a personal reading at a later date, if they would like.

Suggested donation is $25.00. Register here.

Jean Wetzel, Ph.D, Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist (CAS) has been under the spell of the aesthetic and wisdom traditions of Asia since the age of twelve.  A professor of Asian Art History for 30 years, she first turned to yoga as a means of balancing her need for health with the relentless demands of academic life.  The curiosity of a lifelong student and Jean’s passion for yogic and Vedic studies then led her to the study of Ayurveda and Jyotish (Vedic astrology).  Jean was a yoga teacher from 2004-2019, an Ayurvedic practitioner from 2007-2017 and has been studying and practicing Vedic astrology since 2009.  With deepest gratitude to all of her teachers, living and ancient, Jean seeks to share the wisdom, beauty and profound value of these traditional practices with enthusiastic students and clients.

Kirtan with Kirtan Saraswati @ Awakening
Feb 22 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Kirtan is a form of bhakti (“Bhak-tee”), the yoga of devotion; jnana (“gyah-nah”), the yoga of wisdom; and mantra, the yoga of sound. Mantras are words, phrases, and syllables that are repeated until they become integrated into the chanter’s consciousness. Practitioners of kirtan believe that this sacred, traditional practice allows them to access inner peace, calm, connection, and non-thinking.

All are welcome; no experience necessary.

Offered on a donation basis.

Return to Stillness: An Introduction to Meditation to Manage Anxiety with Julie Hitchcock @ Awakening
Feb 29 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am

Given the rapid pace of contemporary life, the push to experience success, and the complexity of the times in which we live, anxiety is a natural response to circumstances that show up in life. Though for many, anxiety can become a regular experience that interferes with everyday life.

Rooted in the ancient teachings of Yoga, meditation practice is becoming prescribed, at an ever-increasing rate, to help manage the effects of anxiety on the mind and body. We all have a yearning to live a life of joy. Yoga philosophy and practice give us a path of spiritually conscious fulfilled living and ultimate freedom from limitations in the mind.

All are most warmly welcome to join Rev. Julie Hitchcock for this Introduction to Meditation class.

Preregistration here is kindly appreciated.
